God's Whistleblower

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness,
but instead expose them.
Ephesians 5:11 (ESV)

Those who live according to the flesh
set their minds on the things of the flesh;
but those who live according to the Spirit
set their minds on the things of the Spirit.
The mind of the flesh is death,
but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace,
because the mind of the flesh is hostile to God:
It does not submit to God’s law,
nor can it do so.
Those controlled by the flesh
cannot please God.
Romans 8:5-8 (BSB)

Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers.
How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness?
How can light live with darkness?
What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil?
How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever?
2 Corinthians 6:14-15 (NLT)

Look how far you have fallen!
Turn back to me and do the works you did at first.
If you don’t repent,
I will come and remove your lampstand
from its place among the churches.
Apocalypse 2:5 (NLT)

“Woe to the rebellious children,” says the LORD,
“Who take counsel, but not of Me,
And who devise plans, but not of My Spirit,
That they may add sin to sin."
Isaiah 30:1 (NKJV)

Behold, the wicked man travails with evil;
he conceives trouble and births falsehood.
He has dug a hole and hollowed it out;
he has fallen into a pit of his own making.
His trouble recoils on himself,
and his violence falls on his own head.
Psalm 7:14-16 (BSB)

There is no darkness or deep shadow
where the workers of iniquity can hide.
Job 34:22 (BSB)
What sorrow awaits those who
try to hide their plans from the LORD,
who do their evil deeds in the dark!
“The LORD can’t see us,” they say.
“He doesn’t know what’s going on!”
Isaiah 29:15 (NLT)
